HCOP: a searchable database of human orthology predictions

Brief Bioinform. 2007 Jan;8(1):2-5. doi: 10.1093/bib/bbl030. Epub 2006 Sep 2.


The HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) Comparison of Orthology Predictions (HCOP) search tool combines the human, mouse, rat and chicken orthology assertions made by PhIGs, HomoloGene, Ensembl, Inparanoid, Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) and HGNC, enabling users to identify predicted ortholog pairs for a specified gene or genes. The HCOP resource provides a useful method to integrate, compare and access a variety of disparate sources of human orthology data. The HCOP search tool, data and documentation are available at http://www.gene.ucl.ac.uk/hcop.
